Tricks of the Trade: Catering Tips for Your Small Event


For any event to be memorable, the food has to be good. Follow these tricks of the trade to make the catering at your next event unforgettable!

Experienced Service

While you might save a few bucks hiring your neighbor's kids to help you serve, the attendees can distinguish between professional and amateur service. It will be worth paying a little extra for experienced servers who really go the extra mile to give exceptional service. Especially for small events, every detail counts. Service should be a big one.

Good service includes knowing about how many people will attend and knowing you have plenty of food to go around. You would hate for the last people in line to miss out!

Quality Food and Presentation

Of course the biggest part of catering is the food, but how do you draw the line between ordinary and extraordinary? Fresh food is a must, but take it to the next level by serving appetizers, entrees, and desserts with a "wow" factor.

Even when serving classic favorites such as chicken, rolls, and cookies, it doesn't have to be boring. Work with the party host to plan out small decorations and festive serving trays that fit with the theme of the party. They may seem like small details, but they will definitely be noticed.
